Aesthetics of the everyday life in contemporary cities
Aesthetics as a philosophical discipline is confronted today with the challenge of responding to the complex phenomena of contemporary daily life. The 8th Mediterranean Congress of Aesthetics focuses on the aesthetics of everyday life, as a field of study that is concerned with the interplay of the active subject with the social-political milieu of contemporary cities.
The congress aims to a creative debate between philosophers, aestheticians, art theorists and theorists of architecture, as well as artists, architects, urban and landscape designers, theorists and researchers of culture and the media, who are interested in formulating a critical contemplation, in relation to the aesthetics of everyday life in contemporary cities.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 December, 2019.
Please, find further details in the attachments.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Literature has so far played a central role in the philosophical debates concerning fiction, narrative and the cognitive relevance of art. The goal of this conference is to explore whether the accounts developed starting from the paradigmatic case of literature can also be applied to other forms of art or if the latter rather require sharply different approaches. We invite submissions for 40-minute presentations (with 20 additional minutes for discussion).
Deadline for submissions: 31 December, 2019.
For further details please visit the website of the conference.

CALL FOR PAPERS
At the outset of the 21st century technological advances combined with shifting geo-political conditions have radically altered the nature of things, from smartphones to the internet of things in contexts that are both “global”and “post-colonial”. In the spirit of collective inter-disciplinary scholarly enquiry, this conference proposes as a first step of “rethinking”the thing in the 21st century a workshop of international thinkers and practitioners across multiple fields. We invite proposals on any topic relevant to the problem of the current nature and understanding of things from disciplines such as, but not confined to, philosophy, design, aesthetics, cultural theory, and the arts.
Deadline for abstract submissions: 30 June, 2019.
Please, find further details in the attached pdf.

Oiva Kuisma, Sanna Lehtinen, and Harri Mäcklin). The twelve essays collected in this volume discuss a wide range of topics from aesthetic intimacy to the nature of modernity and the essence of everydayness, which play important roles both in the philosophy of art and everyday aesthetics. The book can be downloaded in pdf-format from HELDA, the digital repository of the University of Helsinki: https://helda.helsinki.fi/handle/10138/302115

The 21st International Congress of Aesthetics
Possible Worlds of Contemporary Aesthetics: Aesthetics Between History, Geography and Media
July 22-26, 2019, Belgrade, Serbia
The 21st ICA Congress on "Possible Worlds of Contemporary Aesthetics: Aesthetics Between History, Geography and Media", organized by the Faculty of Architecture, The Society for Aesthetics of Architecture and Visual Arts of Serbia (DEAVUS) and International Association for Aesthetics (IAA) will be held July 22-26, 2019 at the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture.
The abstract submission has ended. We received over 500 submission from 56 countries.
The ICA 2019 Belgrade aims to map out contemporary aesthetics practices in a vivid dialogue of aestheticians, philosophers, art theorists, architecture theorists, culture theorists, media theorists, artists, media entrepreneurs, architects, cultural activists and researchers in the fields of humanities and social sciences. More precisely, the goal is to map the possible worlds of contemporary aesthetics in Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa and Australia. The idea is to show, interpret and map the unity and diverseness in aesthetic thought, expression, research, and philosophies on our shared planet. Our goal is to promote a dialogue concerning aesthetics in those parts of the world that have not been involved with the work of the International Association for Aesthetics to this day. Global dialogue, understanding and cooperation are what we aim to achieve.
That said, the 21st ICA will be the first Congress to highlight the aesthetic issues of marginalised countries that have not been fully involved in the work of the IAA. This will be accomplished, among others, via thematic round tables discussing contemporary aesthetics in East Africa and South America.
The Opening Ceremonywill take place at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (which is a few minutes by walk from the venue of the Congress – Faculty of Architecture) on 22nd July, at 9:00 AM, with the Presidential speech and the keynote presentations. In the afternoon Congress will take place at the Faculty of Architecture where it will remain for the whole duration of the Congress.
The final program will be finished by the end of May and posted on the webpage of the Congress.
